We have been going there every night after work and sometimes on the weekend as well. As I said in title " It's all about the waitresses "... if you are lucky and get a good waitress all is perfect, the size of the drink, the portion of the food etc... but if you don't you should just pay your...

If you want a good steak cooked well with a decent selection of sides then Handle Bar is a great place to visit. Good live music showcasing local talent (and some of it is very talented). Well organized attentive staff with good management.

If there was a good, I'd select it, but can't say very good. Sports on TV, attentive staff and a BBQ cooking your steak to order. Steak wasn't very good though, although certainly worth the money.

One of my favorite hangouts since its open all the time and is a place for Motorcyclists ... Wide Variety of Beers(Served below Zero), Good Food, Dim lights,2 seperate smoking areas, comfortable bar stools, friendly staff, live bands on weekdays. Try the buffalo wings and Nacho Dela casa....pretty Legit !!

This is a good venue for watching the Euro 2016 games screened on numerous screens, so you can always see the action. Good cross section of people attend the games and the atmosphere is peaceful. The bar has a wide range of adult beverages from around the globe. In my opinion, the bar food is overpriced and fails to satisfy.

We were there during lunch time so it was quiet and chill. We sat outside under the awning catching welcome shade from the always hot Manila sun. Service was friendly and efficient. Ice cold San Miguels at 70pesos each (or about $1.50 USD) were easy on the wallet. Would go back again and next time for the music too.

Last year we had a great time, excellent band that played all the right covers. This year, we didn't go in as the volume from outside in the street was over the top and the female band playing were shouting, not singing.
